Short/Long Term Disability
Short/Long Term Disability Attorney in Gainesville, Georgia
Short term and long term disability plans are often obtained through your Employer. Short term disability is meant to cover a brief absence from work, such as pregnancy or surgery. Long term disability is meant to cover you if you are going to be unable to return to work for some time, or perhaps unable to return at all.
Unlike Social Security Disability, where everyone’s “policy” is identical, short term and long term disability plans are governed by the policy written by the insurance company. Thus, benefits can vary widely across plans and across employers. Given that the insurer writes the policy, the terms and disability findings are often slanted toward the Insurance Company. If you have been denied short term or long term disability, keep in mind that you may only have one chance to appeal.Contact us today to speak with an experienced attorney.
